Donít expect any more before the show, unless the new Wheels mag has more to add.

Re: Any Typhoon updates?

Wait for the show; The stuff that was released was designed to generate interest at the show. seeing it won't be out on sale until October, we'll be getting drips and drabs from the show date onwards I think?

Re: Any Typhoon updates?

Well a friend of mine who knows the hairdresser of David Flint's next door neighbour's cousin told me that the TYPHOON 2 will be released shortly after the TYPHOON.

It will be 350kw, 8speed gearbox weighing 1200kg, cost $40,000 and do 11.0 seconds 400m. Topspeed is 310km/h and it gets 5l/100km city cycle.
It will have a 10 year 500,000km warranty and the warranty will cover any mods to the engine provided that it does not exceed 2000kw below 1000rpm.
The new technology "Cybertyres" will have 2 modes, burnout and drag.

Burnout mode will leave huge black marks even on mud and emit copius quantities of smoke.
Drag mode will grip like araldite on any surface.

In order to protect the public it will have a "reverse baseball cap detector" built into every component. This safety breakthrough will disable 5 sparkplugs rendering the vehicle back to the Hyundai performance levels suitable for these drivers.

You will not hear much about it as it will be held back by marketing so as not to interfere with TYPHOON sales.

Tonight I am going to find about the TYPHOON 3..........
